No one at the NSA has ever abused their surveillance capabilities. Well, maybe a couple of times. Really no more than a handful. Of course, according to Dianne Feinstein,
As I have said previously, the committee has never identified an instance in which the NSA has intentionally abused its authority to conduct surveillance for inappropriate purposes.
To quote Mike Masnick, "In the meantime, the NSA just made Senator Feinstein look like a complete fool."
Well, you know, Mike... fish, barrel, and all that.
More to the point, as a friend on Facebook pointed out, "I don't like the implication here that she isn't a complete fool."
